"civil war" Discussed on Bro History
"The us government has with the tigray leadership because We worked with them extensively during the war and terror and we had a relationship. Then i mean susan. Rice apparently had a really really close relationship. A relationship with with the nawab. So it's it's There's interesting dynamics. It might just be because the people in the state department just are kind of friendly with the people from From tigray and that could be it. I mean so. I if i can offer my take. I think it's kind of easy to to. It's an easy story to sell to the american public. That oh look at this. Well no no one's from america's listening known cares well. Well that's why i was so surprised. Maybe we can you know. Get back to how we started the show in the first place because they're starting to introduce this to the people right this. Cnn segment was the first major. Like inroad there And actually before. I forget my take on it and talk about some of this stuff. Let's let's let's go a little deeper into that. That story so going back to the beginning apparently how ethiopia Their government used their their countries. Flagship commercial airline and that's Ethiopian airlines to shuttle weapons to and from you know a eritrea during that that crisis last year and this happened Apparently across multiple ethiopian airlines planes and flights in november Twenty twenty during the first couple of weeks of the conflict and and honestly. I wish we could have gotten that scoop when we were covering last year. Because it's is a really fascinating story I just wanna start by saying that smuggling weapons on civilian aircraft is a violation of international aviation law. And there is a million reasons. Why it's a violation of bird'll it's a bird law you know you don't wanna fuck with birds no aviation law international aviation. There's a million reasons. Why but i think the biggest reason why you. You don't want why the international community doesn't want states to be transporting weaponry with civilian aircraft is because you don't want to state thinking that any civilian aircraft is fair game because weapons may be on board. It would be total disaster. So they think about like a sinking of the lusitania even though we definitely had weapons on there. But you know what. I'm saying right so the reason why it's it's against the rules is because we don't want any stating civilians at risk. Sorry as putting civilians at risk exactly right and and even even if it puts them at risk regardless if there's weapons on board or not so that's why these roseanne place and for the most part people follow him and what was interesting about. This is that you know. It's a fair role. I would say their arms right like don't do that. Don't don't smuggle arms with commercial. Airlines is a not a is a. It's a regulation that i don't find unreasonable..

Steve Deace Explains Why So Many Conservatives Are Pedaling the Vaccine
"So many conservatives peddling the vaccine like people that i used to trust and listen to cassini names. You know who i'm talking about. These people say they all care about facts and yet it just is really bizarre to me. Is it wishful. Thinking is now looking at data. Are they afraid of being called names if it's a combination of factors one is there there. There is an element of people in our business whose monetization model derives largely from a platform. Like a face button. And so what you'll find if you go and look at their commentary on things that you don't get pinged on facebook for it. I mean they go. They go to the wall the mattress on those sites on the things that you would get pinged on facebook for like say election integrity or this conversation. They have nothing to say. I think that's part of it. I think also. There is an element within our movement. And i say this as someone that probably was counted himself amongst this group until a few years ago when i could no longer deny the ferocity of just the pagans zealotry that we're up against but there is still a an element of our movement that is concerned about what our base will do if they don't kind of rein them in That that will all be cons- you know. Certified nuts crazy banned everywhere that will be disinvited from polite society so somebody some some really smart people have got to kind of run. The overton window on the right. I think that's part of it I think it's also they think we're still doing conventional science here and that there are you know. There were some very prevalent people in our industry. That were promoting scott gottlieb last year and a legitimate spokesperson. Okay and i think it comes down to you. Know what we can still all work together and live together here. We have you know people that are object there. These people don't exist any longer. No one is objective any longer. You're you're in a culture that's in a cold civil war and i'm sorry it sucks. I'm not you know a father of three kids. I'm not really happy about what that means for the future. But i ha- i can't lie to myself about that any longer

The worn afghantistan did not end the terms. We wanted with the taliban now in power in kabul and we must remember that the taliban was and remains a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al qaeda. I have no illusions who we are dealing with. It remains to be seen whether or not the taliban can consolidate power or if the country were further fracture into civil war.

What Was Machiavelli's Position on War?
"A quote here That i wanted to ask you about that. Machiavelli said which segues beautifully there is. No avoiding war. It can only be postponed to the advantage of others now. I suppose you could take that a variety of different ways to mean war in the sense that we mean war or is he writing this advice to a political figure. You're saying like if you have you have to crush your political opponents now or else they're only gonna grow stronger. Both you're referring to a quote that comes up from chapter three of the prince. At least the next chapter. He lays out the differences between ancient rome in the way modern politics in its business in modern politics. Machiavelli says there's an inclination that you think that somehow wars avoidable that if you just avoid war it won't come to you. In the context of the coat you're mentioning machiavelli talking about foreign enemies for machiavelli. It's it's natural for human beings to want to expand into acquire and so it's the natural inclination of all governments want row a net means imprint in in japan your own borders and national interests. So then you're caught in arms race so to speak of expanding yourself so machiavelli. He thought that the seeked wrong a classical rome was they never thought war was it. Avoidable always took the fight to their enemies now in the discourses he talks about the same phenomenon domestically he says. Sometimes you're gonna find you have enemies within you better stripe while they're still week before they grow and become a faction and which as you're going to have to have either a civil war even
The Taliban Must Deal With These Leaders to Avoid Civil War

In every failed state big man emerges usually the guy with the most guns skinny teenagers and maybe out of that state grows. Do you expect a civil war in afghanistan admiral after a period of time when these tribes fall back to what these tribes have always done which fight each other when they don't fight the west certainly. That's the long in unfortunate history of afghanistan. The taliban are still you know two three weeks into this thing playing their version of taliban two point oh. I saw some shots yesterday of connie the minister of the interior. Who's who has between five and ten million dollar bounty on his head depending on who you talk to a pure terrorist. A dark figure yet. He's walking around kabul effectively handing out candy in the streets. He's being kind and charming and smiling. That's kind of the face of the taliban at the moment if they keep that up. I think they've got a shot at avoiding of major breakdown if they revert to their old practices. It's civil war right around the corner. Because the northern alliance's that big trips to the north. They don't want to be ruled by the pashtoons in the south Unfortunately i would suspect. That is the future of afghanistan. we ought to care for the reasons we just talked about you. Which are that leads to ungoverned spaces that leads to the rise of al qaeda that provides safehaven to slavic state That's what we need to avoid being surprised on all the more reason that we maintain an intelligence capability in afghanistan. As difficult as. that's going to be.

Who lives to perpetuate assistant that treated human beings as less than human and as disposable property throughout the south beginning about one hundred and thirty years ago. Statues were erected in public places to celebrate the confederacy as if it were a noble cause as if it had won the civil war in recent years some of those statues have been removed from public squares. One of the largest was a twenty one foot high likeness of confederate general robert e lee that stood atop granite pedestal. Twice that height in a major traffic circle in richmond. Virginia which was the capital of the confederacy. It was removed only in september. Twenty twenty one confederate war hero. Statues are a celebration of white supremacy.

They should be places where we celebrate democracy and freedom and equality and not civil war generals who fought to perpetuate slavery. They sell the liberties.

They rode forty miles through the countryside. Until it last reaching the ruins of the white lady's nunnery on the northern border of shropshire. When they arrived charles troop said about disguising him. They dressed him in old. Clothes cut his hair and smeared his face with soot. It was a necessary measure because cromwell had already dispatched soldiers to hunt down. the road. King wanted posters quickly appeared far and wide and a one thousand pound reward was issued for his capture with the kings safe for the time. Being most of his friends departed to avoid drawing attention to the group. Only richard peril remained with charles to help lead him through the woods on september fifth. The pair fled towards the river. Saverne where they hoped to cross into wales and from their sale to the relative safety of france unfortunately they found that the severn was heavily. Guarded by cromwell's patrols left with no way forward. Charles and richard were forced to turn back the way they came this time. They headed for bosca bell house a remote hunting lodge about a mile away from the nunnery where they'd hidden the night before when they arrived at around three. Am on the morning of september six. They were informed by richards. Brothers that the white lady's nunnery had already been raided by cromwell's soldiers. Another royalist fugitive named major william carlos was also hiding out at bosko bell. He suggested that it would be safer. If charles didn't stay in the house instead.

What what does he say. Or what do you know that he says that he shared. So rick has i mean. This is well documented. Rick has been prophesying for a number of years that we're going to have another civil war here in america and he's had various dreams at different times but it's documented in history. You know twenty thirty years. He's been saying this was coming. And the lord began to show him back in the eighties that america would have a liberal president and then of course clinton game in office. He thought for sure that was alabama coming off as he thought for sure that was him. But then you know biden. In harris are sitting in the oval office and basically in the dream something would happen. That would cause america to realize. Just how terrible marxism is in that. We would swing back to the right never to go back to the left again. Yeah and so he believes right now.

"civil war" Discussed on The President's Inbox
"Welcome to the president's inbox and see if our podcast about the foreign policy challenges facing the united states. I'm jim lindsey director studies at the council on foreign relations. This week's topic is ethiopia's civil war. With being discussed the fighting in northern ethiopia between federal government forces in regional tigray enforces is michelle gavin. Michelle is senior fellow for africa studies at the council. She was previously managing director of the center from two thousand eleven to two thousand fourteen. She was us ambassador botswana where she served concurrently as the us representative to the southern african development community before that michelle was a special assistant to president barack obama in the senior director for africa on the staff of the national security council michelle. Thanks you being here. Thanks so much for having michelle. Afghanistan is dominated news. As we're speaking so i think a lot of people haven't heard or followed what's been happening in ethiopia. Maybe we could just start by laying out for us. How things currently stand in ethiopia. Sure well unfortunately the situation ethiopia has really gone from bad to worse so fighting that began last november between the two gray enforces in the state of tigray in ethiopia and federal government forces very quickly brought in additional armed groups that would be military of country of eritrea. But also some emperor militia what we have now are even more actors even more armed groups involved in the fighting and we have a geographics sort of expansion of the conflict beyond the borders of tigray itself into a far and amhara states that border on tigray so essentially you have more armed elements in the mix fighting over a larger swath of territory the humanitarian crisis. Which is captured so much of the world's attention persists and in some ways has gotten worse as the sort of chokepoints for bringing food and other types of assistance to people in need have essentially narrowed down to one. There is one way that we're getting humanitarian assistance to tigray and it's not getting in fast enough with talk about how we got to the stage later. We can talk about where we're likely to go. Potential for diplomatic mediation the rest. But i'm trying to understand why the fighting broke out in the first place. Now ethiopia's the country of roughly one hundred ten million people. I have seen estimates that ethiopia has as many as ninety different ethnic groups tigray estate in northern part of ethiopia tigrayans constitute about five percent of the ethiopian population. How is we ended up in a situation which such a small group of people is in a battle with the central government. Well you have to step back in ethiopian history. A bit history is going to be love history on the presence. Inbox great stuff..

He won lifelong democrats. Who voted for bill clinton and Who may have even voted for hillary clinton and two thousand sixteen or or in two thousand eight during the democrat primaries. He won so many indians. Because of these issues that go far beyond a simple tax cut. Sure sir other than the other than kashmir are there any other notable reasons for the increase in support. Well i'd say we covered. I think four or five. Different reasons right there's cushman pakistan. There's the friendship with prime minister. Modi there's a the arms defense deal Trump also has significant business interests. So this was obviously before he became president but he has Significant business interests With trump properties and delhi mumbai Gorgon which is an exit deli and a few other indian cities and then love.

He didn't want that he wanted a united india. He wanted india say as one And he was assassinated because of his political ideology was assassinated by a fellow into Because of that political ideology and detentions between hindus and muslims in india this has been going on for centuries and send central. India was ruled by muslims. By the mogul. The mogul muslims for centuries and centuries. Yeah and so. This goes way back and this is the big elephant in the room. I mean you have. Trump's rhetoric against radical islam and his rhetoric rhetoric against radical islam during the orlando shootings. And that happened in two thousand sixteen. And i mean there were so many terrorist attacks on almost every month. There was terrorist attack happening within the united states. Oh yeah and that rhetoric got him a bunch of indian supporters because it was the first time that a a. Us president wasn't being politically correct and was calling out these issues. That indians have had to deal with for decades and decades living indians to deal with for decades and decades and decades. And it's almost like he was speaking to them gotcha and it's just so he. He decided to tackle those issues. Or at least at least be on the same side publicly and we'll at least just call it out and then work and then work work also diligently to try to try to reinforce that i think is is notable in and and an amazing accomplishment as it stands we mentioned we mentioned some riots previously with the blm and all the racial tension. Otherwise you know. Is there a. Is there a particular picture of systemic racism that stands out to you or do you feel like you know. Blacks are treated unequally or people of color in general in jobs education etc. no end. look this is. This is a very loaded topic and unfortunately we lived in a society for the last fifteen or twenty years so not recent to to donald trump. Sure we've lived in a society where you're not allowed to talk about race without being called a racist and it it it people are so especially. If you're a white male. I mean which is what you are. You're not allowed to say anything right anymore. You say anything that comes out of your mouth is just using it. You're either a racist or a sexist misogynist or xenophobic or it. It's trust it's very sad the world that we live in or the country that we live in where we can't even have a conversation with with somebody who might have a different view or a different opinion than as or who can just share some facts yet definitely. We can't even have that conversation. And that's a major reason why i wrote trump books so that i can have that conversation with the other side in a book format so so going to you brought up the term systemic racism. There's just so much wrong with that term because just four years ago. Who was running the system. Ever rocco barack obama and he was elected twice. Any there you go. He was elected twice. So now you're telling me is in a matter of two years. Somehow the system became racist in. And that's what. I'm not understanding. I'm not able to grasp okay. If the system is racist and how did a black man how was he elected president two times in a row if the system is racist. Then how come over. Twenty percent of police officers are black african american but into damp by that point. Why is the largest. Racial demographic of the border patrol and ice are hispanic americans of hispanic descent and and then on top of that. We we talk about you. Brought up an example of his life. Harder or i forgot exactly what you said but if we go to to be. Let's say admissions like college admissions. Okay and logan i worked. I have an undergraduate degree and a graduate degree. Undergrad from would probably the top journalism school in the world and a graduate degree from what was named the number one school. According to twenty it was fifteen bloomberg businessweek and the rankings. And i worked at the admissions offices at both of these schools and i even worked at the recruitment office at the journalism school specifically to recruit people of color specifically to.
"civil war" Discussed on The Midnight Patriots
"It all. That's patriot dot com slash midnight patriots patriotic dot com slash midnight patriots patriots nation. Thanks for sticking with us through the bank as previously. We're continuing our conversation with narration. Nourish in in your book. You talk about a lot of a lot of things and as a hindu hindu indian american yourself. You mentioned that Believe that there was just a support from from your community for president. Trump was overwhelming. What are some of the primary reasons In your opinion well. I i want to state that term. Overwhelming trump did not win the indian vote. I'll just like trump did not win the black vote or the hispanic vote but it's compared to what the republican party for decades has been known as the what like ultra white party and it's like the whitest of the white and there and and this was long before the term white supremacy. We can talk about that a little bit later. I don't know where it came from either. But when george bush was president going back to when his father was president. The republican party has always struggled to attract minority voters. Whether it's women whether it's lgbtq whether it's indian-americans hispanic black african american unit. The republican party has struggled president trump. He did a phenomenal job of getting number one. The highest number of votes from the african american community for a republican really ever trucks of more than eleven percent of african americans voted in and look. This is how bad it was mitt. Romney got less than five percent of the african american vote. I don't know i. I don't blame him one bit but go ahead. Yeah yeah well like you said mitt romney how how is he going to be able to relate to the african american community whereas brought up earlier. Donald trump has been featured in rap songs since the early nineties. He was a guest star on fresh prince of bel air knee. He's somebody who many within the african american community including oprah have have revered and so going back to the indian american community look indians or overwhelmingly overwhelmingly democrat as surprising as it may be if you look at president. Obama in two thousand eight over eighty eight percent of the indian americans voted for obama. Voted democrat in two thousand eight. So if you if we were to assume that eleven twelve percent voted republican in two thousand eight. Well somewhere between two thousand eight and twenty. Twenty twelve percent ballooned to over thirty percent and this is data that's available on various indian publications also cornell university has a political science department that publishes data like this and all this is covered in my book trump book. And why did president trump get over thirty percent of the indian-american vote will of course number one there's taxes and that's the first thing people say they're like oh you know indians. They're cheap they care about saving money and all he did it because of the taxes that it's really not the reason because president bush had a tax cut ronald reagan tax cut bush mesnier tax cuts and indian americans didn't come out in such drugs to vote for these individuals taxes helped. Don't get me wrong. Sure access certainly help. But it was a few other issues which people neglect number one is really the support for india in the fight for in the fight against its arch rival pakistan and also in its fight for cush near a territory that has been thought ever since india split Partition in the nineteen forties split into two so pakistan was created so president trump came out in february of two thousand nineteen outright. He came out and he threw his support behind india in the fight for kashmir and he said india is our ally and that leads to the second issue which is every us president for decades whether republican or democrat every us president has been aiding india's main rival arch nemesis pakistan providing billions and billions of dollars in support and this was a political strategy because everyone in mom neil that the really the epicenter of terrorism of what are these terrorist training camps in withdraws of madasi call them are in pakistan and where was osama bin laden found. He was found in pakistan just a mile or two away from a major military base. Yes i said it was. He was found. What a few miles from. What what we would consider their version of west point their military academy yeah right and they're not a bunch of dummies that the united states bush obama clinton. They all knew this church but their strategy was. Let's continue to provide billions of dollars of federal funding to pakistan and dad towel. We're going to control them. That's how we're gonna control. Terrorism trump was the first and a lot of it. I think had to do with just being an outsider in thinking more freely and not politically which i absolutely agree with him. Coming in saying i'm going to defunding cut off aid to pakistan. It makes absolutely no sense to for us to be feeding them all this money when they're not doing anything to help us. India is our friend and so he signed a bakery point. Five billion dollar arms defense deal which was a very similar to what president bush president bush signed eight more of a nuclear deal during when he was president but trump signed a three point five billion dollar arms and defence deal and he has trump had a very strong friendship with prime minister moody. Who is also a right wing. You know. I make an india. Trump stole all. These tagline from motomachi was elected in two thousand. Fourteen trump bent start running until who mid to late twenty fifteen so there is a huge friendship between the two between prime minister modi india and us relations and greatly improved under president trump and the issue of kashmir is such an emotional. It's so emotional. To indians especially indians. Who grew up in india. I don't feel that emotion. Because i was born and raised here in the united states. I'd seen movies about it and People in.

"I think one is that yes needed. Turner raise more money than sean brown but there was a lot of outside money in this race and nina. Turner mentioned it. The democratic majority for israel super pac spent close to a million dollars. Tv ads against nina turner szanto brown's fundraising did pick towards the end in nina. Turner spent a lot of money on tv very early in the race. She went up in late april for in august. Third primary. I think you could make the argument. She was trying to lock her lead. But by the end she was being out pointed out spent on the air By sean. Tell brennan sean. Toll brown ally. So i think this idea that like even you know as a financial resource can't sell these ideas is is a little unfair. I think when you look at the ads that sean brown ran and that these outside groups ran against nina turner. They weren't saying nina. Turner supports medicare for all in the green new deal. Here's why these ideas will hurt your life or hurt the way you live for why they're not good for you. They said nina. Turner is not a good soldier for the democratic party. Nina turner has said mean things about joe biden. Nina turner is not going to you. Know get things done and so like being anti joe biden is not popular but i don't know that this race proved that progressive ideas are popular at the base. Because it's really not what. They attacked her own. Yeah yeah and so. I'm hesitant to draw too big of a takeaway on the policy proposals. Yeah it seems it seems like there's not that wide gap anymore at least in washington with what biden is driving policy-wise between the sanders wing and the biden wing. Right sanders is the guy writing biden. The biden budget in the senate and the white house seems pretty happy with it. And i think progressives are trying to figure out how do we fit into this democratic washington like sean mcelwee st- the liberal pulling data for progress Told me last night. Democratic voters like the democratic party progressives to show that we support the democratic party living up to its true values not trying to tear it down. I think there's a wing of the progressive party that envisions working with the establishment. Working inside at like you mentioned and not blowing it out from the outside which is what. A lot of nina's past rhetoric hinted at alley on the republican side. We had another nice press friendly civil war narrative going on we had a much bigger fielded candidates but one of them was endorsed by donald trump. And he's a wonderful man. I've known her for a long time. Mike.

"In president binds caton so she can't endorse in the race. Calm and i can so that the underlying thread between the battle and why the cbc decided to endorses that the cdc has been has seen more progressive primary challengers in recent years especially since eighteen and in twenty twenty corey. Bush actually said lacy clay from his saint. Louis district black majority district lacy claes the son of a founder of the cbc and joyce beatty the current chairwoman had a progressive challenger. That clark has had a challenge a really intense fear in the cbc of being ousted by progressive challenges in. It's not just because they like being in congress and they want to stay in congress even as some of these kind of younger black progressive candidates win open seats enjoying the cbc changed. The dynamic cbc is a historic group that prides itself on unity on its ability to act as a block. And now that there's more difference than ideology because some of the the younger members are more progressive but also style They're more critical of leadership. They don't necessarily defer to seniority. And so there's kind of competing view of what the cbc should be and nina turner really embodied for them. You know someone that was going to come in and hurt their unity and break their ability to speak with one voice and jim clyburn got so heavily involved in the race because nina turner and killer mike and a conversation that they had during a campaign of an june had suggested that no. He wasn't doing enough to trade on his endorsement of biden. He wasn't doing enough to extract more gains from bite. It and that really angered jim clyburn. And that was part of why he couldn't add for chantal brown and why he came into the district and y you know they got involved in the way that they did so. There's a bigger kind of question about the cbc in their involvement. That is really interesting. I feel like killer. Mike in clyburn have a little bit history as 'cause killer. Mike has been a longtime bernie supporter and campaigned heavily in south carolina. I think the clever presidential candidates have always defeated killer. Mike candidates in those presidential primaries in south carolina. So clever and this is like three for three with with him against a killer. Mike candidates and this was. I mean he really came in and endorsed someone tell she was behind and help took it over the finish line. So he definitely earned the king-making power here while sue one interesting dynamic that was playing out in washington on the same day as this primary. Is that corey bush Known as a member of the squad Very prominent a black woman progressive in the house. I'm elated and i'm overwhelmed. You know because just the thought that so many people right now. Millions of people you know will not be fourth out on the street. She was essentially leading activists to push the biden administration on this issue of the evictions. Moratorium got a ton of attention by staying overnight on the capitol steps. She couldn't literally sleep on the capitol steps. Because you're you're not allowed. So she was up for. I believe like three nights doing this Widespread coverage and the biden administration seems to have reversed course and pushed the cdc to extend this moratorium. And i noticed in the coverage of this depending on whose writing the story. Some people really emphasized the progressive activist wing of the party and corey bush's leadership. Here and others really emphasized. Nancy pelosi's behind the scenes conversations with the white house. So even in these stories of like. Who's actually getting things done in washington. You see the the sort of split in the democratic party playing out. I'm just curious. If you see this playing out a lot more in in congress i think it. It actually played out a bit in this race. Corey buscher supposed to be campaigning. For nina turner a weekend that she stayed out over the capitol steps and she couldn't come because she was trying to make a statement in dc and that was repeatedly mentioned at nina turner's victory on tuesday night that this is why we need people in congress like corey bush like nina turner because they are pushing the administration to get these gains the flip side of this on chantelle brown side. She stressed that nina turner had made too many enemies. She said i'm not going to have to start my time in congress with a long list of apologies to people i've offended. I've got good relationships. I can go in and get things done. Look at these people. I know what jim clyburn enjoy. Spady greg meeks penny thompson. These cbc members who have come into the district. I obviously have a good relationship with marcia fudge. I'm going to be effective. I'm going to be able to get things done. So i think there is still that back and forth in that question of like what brings results in this campaign this morning. I got an email from some very close to joe biden. Who made the following point to wanna tell me what you think of this. This person said chantal brown has fewer than twenty thousand twitter followers. Anita nina turner has nearly half a million but the afc wing of the party now has lost the louisiana special where their candidate outspent the winner. The virginia governor new york city mayor and now ohio eleven were nina turner and her name. R i d started with thirty five point lead end outspent. Shantelle brown person goes on. And the the d triple c polling showing that joe biden's agenda particularly infrastructure. Bill is the strongest argument in front-line districts. That should be a warning. So this person's clearly arguing that kind of biden style. Moderate candidates are crushing it in these elections and that is the way for democrats to keep the house next year. Is this a little too much spin or is this a real trend here. That should have the moderates declaring their like winning the civil war right now. I i actually have because this is a point. A lot on twitter. That twitter is not real life. Lena turner had all of this twitter energy but shawn brown had this port on the ground. that nina turner had all the money but her ideas weren't popular. I think there's two problems at that point..

"The gift things done for you choose endorsed by a lot of pro israel democrats. This district has the largest jewish population in the state so the two competing visions of the party were really do fit into this establishment. I progressive dichotomy. We can take away from the result. Cento brown's victory is that the democratic establishment is popular and in the biden era. It does really seem like progressives have had a harder time. Making a case against joe biden. Right the party establishment got rid of trump. joe biden is the consummate establishment democrat. He's in office. He's fairly popular. He did no better than a lot of democrats in swing districts. And you go back and look at the twenty twenty results and so i think progressives are having a harder time articulating. Why why do you need to throw the bums out now than they did. In the trump era. So i think that's a fair lesson but on the don't take away too much from this. Nina turner is a very unique candidate in that cheap on the trail for bernie sanders for two presidential campaigns. She was a regular presence on cable news in. She's very outspoken. And she says what she thinks and she's not afraid to use colorful language and there's a really long trail of her saying things about the democratic party thinks about president biden things about hillary clinton that the ads in the money that came in against here. They took her own words. She trashed joe. Bud you got to. And i don't think there's going to be a candidate again with so much real anna trove of tape to us to cut ads against her into paint her. As someone who is not welcoming the democratic party is that's part of the democratic party alley. Can you just tell us what it was like on the ground covering this race so much of american politics right now is focused on what's going on in washington. It's not campaign season so the special elections tend to get a huge flood of national attention to the scene. A little bit about what you're reporting trip was like and what how sort of the politics of washington are being refracted in these local races. Right now it's been a while since i've been out on the trail yet end bike a nice window here covet kind of dying down and yeah i mean both events and i was out here on election night and a little bit before. Both both campaigns had such well attended events. People seemed really really engaged. And new turner's events with a she had four different rallies spread out throughout the day. And i went to a few of those and in the first three were close to hundreds and attendants and the hundred channel range and two ton of excitement and it really felt like people made the connection between nina turner and llc and the squad and the squad was doing in washington and at nina turner's watch party. People were talking about the win. That corey bush got on the eviction moratorium. You're pointing to that. As an example of what progressives can do in congress sir really did feel like people leaned into the kind of nationalized nature of this race and chantelle brown had you know the majority of cbc leadership come out for her last weekend. Jim clyburn bennie thompson. Median and i think they both brought the not big national names into the district and shantelle had to chip away at nina's lead and a big part of chipping away. At nina's lead was stoking this democratic civil war argument and getting people interested in supporting her in getting people involved since. It's just the two of us talking. What is your favorite story from. The trip didn't make it into any of your coverage all. I'll leave nameless. But when i was chatting with a brown staffer he had started in june. So kinda well into the race and the first week he started was when the nina term poll came out in this report from Showing her at fifty percent in toll brown at i think fifteen percent and he was like recounting that moment for me where he got on the ground and it was kind of like you know what am i doing. This races is not winnable. And so i think that just showed the trajectory of like how much of a league chantelle brown had to overcome. Because you know by the end. Her pulling had her out. They didn't release this polling like she was up several points by the end i think they knew away was headed. Let's talk a little bit about the congressional black hawk casses involvement in this race. These were two african american candidates obviously but the cbc took sides Tell us about how that played out. Yeah that was an incredibly contentious part of the race because there's been policy that knowing there several black candidates in a race the the sea political arm stays out of it. This is not like a hardline policy but more general trend and some of its members have said that in the past this was an open seat race between two black women and they did just endorse but they very heavily put them on the scale to the extent that they can in the early respected in this district and i do think that made a difference. So the voters in this district. They know what the cbc is. That's not just an inside washington term to a lot of voters so yes and no older voters in the district are really familiar with the cbc. I i would say you know younger voters. It made less of an impact but There are definitely older..

"He could stay there must sexual orientation i see it lets me know. He's the man he he's a man but there's an entire wing of american public life. It's not only is he. Not man this woman is a big for saying that a man walking around spa with his junk hanging out is a woman right. If you say the data that net that man is not a woman. You are the biggest. She's the biggest rather. I mean the these are social issues. That have dramatic ramifications. Because it is coming for you. It is coming for your business. It is coming your religious life. It is coming for your school. The left his made this absolutely appearance. And not just on the governmental level right using antidiscrimination laws in order to cram down this bizarre version of human logic in which men can become women and women can become men in unprecedented notion in all of human logic or history or biology or physics or any other field of human number head is institutions with socially taken up the cause because they understand that the left is pushing for control and the right has been back footed on this stuff. They've been wrongfooted for years and years and years. The right has been told you know. Why are you focusing on the social issues. Just leave the social issues off the table. Because that's the contentious stuff then focusing on economics. That's where you guys are gonna wind wind supporters when it comes to lower taxes and lower spending it is precisely the opposite. You look at the trump coalition. The trump coalition was largely rooted in cultural concerns not in economic concerns and cultural concerns. Grow more grave every single day because there is one group that is on the march one group that simply seeks to preserve its own perspective on life which happens to be rooted in reality and biology natural law again. People on the right are not making the case per se that a private business in los angeles doesn't have the ability to have single sex locker rooms. They're saying you don't get to leverage that idea on me. Left has no such limitations on its own ambitions here and cultural institutions of our day are seeking to cram down values that have literally nothing to do with their core businesses on everybody else remember. We don't just live and in governmental sphere laws and regulations. We live in a cultural sphere. So it does make a difference. What your kids watch on tv. It does make a difference. Major corporations are attempting to leverage down on your kids when you walk into a target and fruit loops is selling gay pride month paraphernalia to your five year old. And that's what it's directed at. Well that has an impact on how your kid thinks and pretend that it doesn't is to ignore what time it is. It is to ignore what is going on in the world. Hey the this is why parents are attempting to guard their children. It's why parents are saying. You know we just want to be left alone but you will not leave us alone and by the way if forced to it if forced to the confrontation the cold civil war that is currently happening will continue to heat up. There will just be a struggle for who gets control everybody else. There will not be any broad based agreement on classical liberalism. Where you got to do white. You wanna do and i get to do what i wanna do but if left pushes too hard. They're not going to get classical liberals in response they're going to get people on the right who react by saying okay. Well we will take control of the commanding heights and now we will use our leverage to press our own political viewpoints into law. We will attempt to cram down on you. What it is that we want not even on a state or local level. We will not even with regard to public funded enterprise. We'll do a private funded enterprise. They are the the left radicalism and deep willingness normalize institutions to weaponize against people. They don't like is going to result in a backlash. There's going to be far uglier than what the left thinks is going to happen next and does come down to things like what you see in your daily life pissing you off or it does come down to things like the nfl example putting out full-scale commercials saying football is gay in. Let's be real about this. Football football is not gay. It's not straight football football. The hell does the. Nfl have to say about sexual politics when you turn on a game typically. It's because you wished to watch people play football not because you wish to watch the nfl socially message about any particular social issue whether you're talking about hands up don't shoot which was ally or they're talking about homosexuality and politics and yet this is what the nfl is pushing because they feel the cultural momentum from the left but they understand. Sooner or later there's going to be a backlash and it's going to be quite ugly against a lot of the same institutions that have been normalized on behalf of radicals. Most americans have been apathetic about these sorts of issues. The her the left pushes the more. The backlash is going to be the greater backlashes. With more polarized the country becomes there is no apathetic middle anymore. You will not be allowed to be apathetic. You will not be allowed to say things. Like i don't care what the nfl sexual politics is. I just wanna watch football that in and of itself will be evidence of your discriminatory nature. Here's the nfl ad says. Football is gay interesting football as lesbian football beautiful football.

"It is a cold civil war and it is eight cold civil war only because the federal government has not been able to actually use its power to cram down california on florida and that's going to be the great battle of the future. Then there's a a sort of bumper sticker. That's been going around in florida because governor rhonda santa's is very popular. Lord has gotten a lot better even in his gotten demographically browner which is kind of an amazing rebuttal. who left wing notion. That demographics are destiny. So there's this bumper sticker that's been going around which is make america florida. There's another one going around. Don't california my florida. If america were more like florida what that would mean is the californians get to live as they wish to live it would also mean that floridians get to live as they wish to live if florida would become more like california because the federal government is cramming down a particular set of standards and practices on floridians that they do not want only one direction is as authoritative person. I saw yesterday that there are a lot of people on the left who were bizarrely surprised. At the fact. That clarence thomas the most conservative justices on the supreme court had made statements. About how the federal government really should not be in the business of regulating marijuana. I'm not sure why this surprised by that. That's been clear summonses position for quite a while. I'm not sure why there are so. Many people surprised by this national review has been in favor of decriminalizing marijuana use for decades at this point. Why because if you are on the right one of the things that you rely upon to maintain the ability to live a liberty driven. Lifestyle is more libertarian perspective on government. The left does not have any such compunction left deeply desires to cram down its own worldview on everybody also understand when we talk about a cold civil war this is not an even-handed civil war in which both sides want similar things from the other side very much the opposite the right typically wants to be left alone and the left does not want to leave the right alone and you can see this into the country coming apart on every major and minor issue that particularly on social issues if you see them getting more polarized that is because the social left has been on the march is not economic left. Yes obama can make a difference but obamacare was not the great breaking point in the united states. Great breaking point in the united states was the recapitulation of american politics in terms of radical social policy that alienated the entire middle of the country and it continues apace so when the when the left says why are you paying attention to social issues. The answer is because we see what you are coming to do. We see what you want from us a to take an example l. Let's talk about the issue of race. In the united states k so in order for us to live in a common policy we have to understand certain wants and even if you believe in sort of federalist perspective and a libertarian perspective. There have to be certain basic premises. Which is that. We all share a country for a reason and that the country is rooted in some fundamental. Good if you believe that. The country is fundamentally bad and wrong in the needs to be completely remade particularly along authoritarian lines. Well that is going to lead to conflict. Then we'll have the country cheers. That's can perspective at this point right. Which is why you see when berry making national news. We live in a country where you become more rich and more famous for boycotting the national anthem. Then you do for simply standing for the national anthem in baseball in the nineteen seventies. There was this very famous circumstance. Where rick monday was outfielder. At the time for the chicago cubs there is a wrigley field and rick. Monday went and grabbed a guy trying to ran onto the field. Who's trying to burn american flag. Rick monday came over and and grabbed the american flag away from him and he was jeered for this today. The player himself would be lighting. The american flag on fire in the outfield and the media would be cheering for him so when is made international headlines because at the olympic trials. She decided to turn her face away from the flag and to make faces during the national anthem and then post about. What a courageous fighter. She was the reason why we are all paying attention to you when berry is because you want us to pay attention to you. You want the attention. The quick path to fame and riches in the united states is to crap over the flag not to pay attention to the flag. Being patriotic is considered wrote and hackneyed burning. The flag is considered forward thinking and wonderful by at least half the country which means there can't be any sort of unified policy. There have to be some things that we agree on on a broad level. And by the way if you're if you're representing the united states and for example the panamerican games as gwen. Berry did right she. She didn't twenty nineteen and she got in hot water with the international olympic committee. The united states olympic committee specifically because she decided that she was going to raise her fist during the national anthem in protest of some thing or other and And then the new york times gave her space right because that is how this works so she's been attempting to get attention for this sort of stuff for for quite a while. Despite the fact that when berry has lived a pretty amazing life in the united states as it turns out when very grew up in her grandparents home. There are thirteen people in the home in grandmother's home. And then she had a baby out of wedlock at the age of fifteen that a scholarship to southern illinois university and she's made a career ever.

Yeah you experimentalist people in there and it was like. Oh my god iconic this this and this but like they could have done so much more with captain america just alone in the comic books in america ends up dying and civil war and then falcon turns into will not found him.

"On that island set Sports Center on April 12th, eighteen sixty one a single mortar shell shattered the pre-dawn sky and the United States just 85 years old. You're rupted into all-out Civil War. Initially for President Abraham Lincoln the war was about a single overriding goal saving the union from the forces of secession in the American South Jersey forces that were threatening to tear the Republic apart. There was a ditty that people used to sing around Union recruiting that I think sums up what Lincoln's original orientation was. It went something like I stand for the union all its foes. I abhor I ain't for the n-word but I am for the war soon after the War Began its focus began to change when enslaved African Americans forced to work in the confederacy's defense escaped behind Union lines off escaped slaves who run away to Union lines are called Contraband and what union policymakers including Lincoln begin to recognize is this creates a welcome disruption among the southern Edge. I've holders this deprives in their property. It shuts down their plantations and it makes their war effort more difficult. The swelling numbers of Contraband push President Lincoln to see that the Civil War was actually about abolishing the institution of slavery ultimately leading him to issue the Emancipation Proclamation in many ways. The Emancipation Proclamation is first and foremost a military policy. It's not clear that Union is winning the war before the Emancipation Proclamation. So the Emancipation Proclamation also gives these escaped slaves the opportunity to serve in the Union Army. This is crucial to the union success in the war effort. With the freedom of their people at stake almost 200,000 black men enlisted in the Union Army and Navy playing a pivotal role in bringing Victory to the north the key element that changed the outcome of this war in terms of who wanted and in terms of what it was about were the slaves themselves their determination that this war was going to be about the end of slavery masses of self liberated slaves became the wave that the union would Altima ride to Victory..

Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten.

So as we were going through this greg and I are discussing, okay, where do we talk about the civil war causes right I was like well and to be efficient on this because that could be like a two hour. We're not doing that. Now we're not does not happen. If you decided as a listener, you wanted to refresh her on causes of the civil war. He wanted to go back to listen to episodes we recommend listening to episodes. Two through forty five, that should do. Okay. So tongue-in-cheek aside, we were talking about win did we I get something that connects to the civil war and? That it's in episode two where James Otis is writing a pamphlet it. You know we're talking about colonial taxation right and in that pamphlet as some of you might recall perhaps if you've listened to number two recently for whatever reason if you haven't in a long time by all means, go back give it a listen. And I did. Mention. that. James has a part in this pamphlet where as he's talking about colonial rights in taxes and whatnot he kind of has his own little aside were it's just a pager so but he says, Hey, by the way. Black colonists are equal to white colonists a we're all British subjects. We all have these rights or at least he's saying you maybe that doesn't equal the actual political reality, but he's argument. Yeah. That's how it should be.

The discourse is in play right read yet people are already discussing it so So really you can start episode to what you really don't need to really if you WANNA start talking at causes of the Civil War Co Post. Mexican. American war.
